Merry Christmas to one and all.
Give a penny for the poor, governor.
Penny for the poor.
My partner, Jacob Marley,
He was a good one.
He robbed from the widows
and swindled the poor.
In his will, he left me enough money
to pay for his tombstone.
And I had him buried at sea.
Good morning, Mr. Scrooge.
Cratchit, what are you doing
with that piece of coal?
I was just trying to thaw out the ink.
You used a piece last week.
Now, get on with your work, Cratchit.
Speaking of work, Mr. Scrooge,
tomorrow is Christmas,
and I was wondering
if I could have half a day off.
I suppose so.
But I'll dock you half a day's pay.
Now, let's see,
I pay you two shillings a day.
Two shillings and a halfpenny, sir?
Oh, yes. I gave you that raise
three years ago.
when I started doing your laundry.
All right, Cratchit,
get busy while I go over my books.
Oh, and here.
Here's another bundle of shirts for you.
Let's see now, 50 pounds,
10 shillings from McDuff.
Plus his 80 percent interest
Money, money, money.
Merry Christmas, Uncle Scrooge.
I'll tell you what Christmas is,
it's just another workday.
And any jackanapes who thinks else
should be boiled in his own pudding.
But, sir, Christmas is a time for giving.
A time to be with one's family.
I say, bah, humbug.
I don't care. I say, merry Christmas.
Well said, Master Fred.
Cratchit, what are you doing?
I was just trying
to keep my hands warm, sir.
And what are you doing here, nephew?
I've come to give you a wreath
and invite you to Christmas dinner.
Well, I suppose you're going
to have plump goose
- with chestnut dressing.
And will you have plum pudding
and lemon sauce?
Yeah. Boy, oh, boy.
And candied fruits
Yeah. Will you come?
Are you daft, man?
You know I can't eat that stuff.
Here's your wreath back.
Now out, out, out.
And a "bah, humbug" to you.
That Fred, always so full of kindness.
Aye, he always was a little peculiar.
Customers. I'll handle this, Cratchit.
Yes, what can I do
for you two gentlemen?
Sir, we are soliciting funds
for the indigent and destitute.
For the what?
We're collecting for the poor.
Well, you realise
if you give money to the poor,
they won't be poor anymore, will they?
- And if they're not poor anymore,
then you won't have to raise money
for them anymore.
Well, I suppose...
And if you don't have to raise money
for them anymore,
then you would be out of a job.
Oh, please, gentlemen,
don't ask me to put you out of a job.
- Not on Christmas Eve.
- We wouldn't do that, Mr. Scrooge.
Well, then, I suggest
you give this to the poor and begone.
What's this world coming to, Cratchit?
You work all your life to get money,
and people want you to give it away.
Two minutes fast.
Well, never mind those two minutes.
You may go now.
Oh, thank you, sir. You're so kind.
Never mind the mushy stuff. Just go.
But be here all the earlier the next day.
I will. I will, sir. And a "bah humbug..."
I mean, a merry Christmas to you, sir.
No, that can't be.
Gosh, kind of slippery.
Scrooge, don't you recognise me?
I was your partner, Jacob Marley.
Marley, it is you.
Ebenezer, remember when I was alive,
I robbed the widowsRate this script:5.0 / 1 vote
